It was a packed house at Project Gallery + Espresso on Thursday night in Hollywood! Bloggers Jackie Chambers of TGIFguide and Brittany “Bella” Graham of Lipstick Lace & Lattes + Love & Biscotti produced and hosted The Style of Social Media, A Fashion and Beauty Panel in association with LA Social Media Week. Guests enjoyed delicious cheesecake cupcakes by Cheesecake de Granger and sipped on wine and Svedka vodka provided by Star Studded Media Group while networking with other industry professionals leading up to the start of the panel.
The two fashionistas, business women, bloggers and hostesses opened with a “HASHTAG” skit inspired by Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake‘s recent comedy sketch for the Late Show which got the audience of #bloggers #publicists #businessowners #entreprenuers and more laughing. From there they introduced the awesome panel which featured speakers representing innovative companies recognized as leaders in their industries, including STYLE Fashion Week, 365HANGERES, Forte the Collective, Hello Society, and entertainment professional Nina Parker of OMG! Insider.
